Question about Skype IM
My family has just signed up on the SKYPE and my family has no problem seeing each other. I have a problem ,I have a mac and I have OSX and the latest in firefox. I am able to hear everyone but an not able to see anyone on my Mac. I have already tyred to get help from fixya and got a reply of , there is a problem between mac and PC come on there has to be a fix to this... hope someone can help
I have a mac too and am able to skype my mac and PC friends . . . ideally you can go to iChat where you can video-conference more than 2 people (skype, as you may be aware, is limited to 2, for now); but getting back to your 'not seeing each other' problem, when your skype window opens you should see your picture in that window, if you don't, there is something wrong with your camera - make sure the green light at the top of your monitor is on, go to the help or 'settings' menu, and turn it on, I can't recall how I activated mine (when it wasn't on), but the green light must be on; and on the other end, their camera must be similarly on, and often it is as simple as clicking on the blue video / camera icon at the bottom left of the skype window . . . I know often times I am skyping with novice users who have inadvertently 'hit a button' and have disabled their video . . . hope this helps.

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
